Labor and Comfort Measures for Child Birth with Denyse Ffrench The Bradley Method is a system of partner-coached natural childbirth. The intention of Bradley Method classes is to teach methods of relaxation, self-awareness, and comfort measures to deal with the stress of labor as an alternative to medical intervention. The Bradley Method operates on the premise that birth is a natural, normal process, and the laboring woman and her partner can work together through labor, without common medications and interventions, if they have the right tools and support.
While inspired by the Bradely Method, this class will focus on labor and comfort measures over a 4 week period. This class is appropriate for couples who would like a refresher class in preparation for their 2nd or beyond baby. This class is also appropriate for couples who do not have the time to take a full class because their due date is immanent or their schedule does not allow for it. All are welcome. Fee: $175 per couple.
Denyse Ffrench is the mother of four, including a set of twins, with very different birth experiences. The breadth of her first hand knowledge with natural and assisted labors and deliveries is invaluable to her teaching expertise. Please check out her website to learn more about her supportive, informative and non-judgmental childbirth class: www.denyseffrench.com.
